Orthopedic & Deep Tissue Massage
The pressure is just right. It may involve stretches and movement in order to addresses your special issues: injuries, acute and chronic pain and specific muscle/tendon problems. The massage focuses on site specific rehabilitation of muscles and connective tissues. It uses precision to address the muscle pain. It may include a postural analysis, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, stretches, muscle energy work and specific patient home care. Just the right things to restore your body to balance.
Some of the release of the muscles is achieved through trigger point therapy, slow compression and lengthening procedures. Shortened muscles can cause a decrease in blood circulation and inhibit lymph flow. Waste products stored in muscles can cause the muscles to become inflamed and irritating to nerve fibers thus causing pain. The internal toxicity to the immune system can cause disease. Muscle fibers that cannot lengthen are likely to cause injury. They tear at the musculotendinous joint or where the tendons blend with the periosteum of the bone. Increasing circulation through massage helps the system to carry away waste and bring oxygen to the tissues.
